Recently discovered the following two addresses in my DNS-filter, 26.26.26.1 and 26.26.26.2. How can I confirm that these belong to? These are both public-ip addresses but seems to be owned by the US Military?

If I look at https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/26.26.26.2, it says it belongs to:

  • ISP: DoD Network Information Center
  • Type: Military
  • Country: US.

What does this mean? As far as I've researched, its got something to do with Socks protocol? This Github repo I found seems to be using it too, but why is it used? If anyone knows, id very much appreciate your help.

edit1: formatting

edit2: Found an additional GH Repo that use the same IP addresses for something called V2RayVPNService: https://github.com/2dust/v2rayNG/blob/master/V2rayNG/app/src/main/kotlin/com/v2ray/ang/service/V2RayVpnService.kt

edit3: This blogpost explains it quite well. https://blog.erratasec.com/2013/12/dod-address-space-its-not-conspiracy.html

The reason all these address spaces are DoD is because that's really the only source of unused IPv4 addresses left. All IPv4 address ranges have been assigned. But, the DoD has been assigned 20% of the IPv4 address space, but most of it is used within the DoD, on their own private networks, and is not routable to the outside world. Thus, if you are looking for a large chunk of "private" addresses that won't suddenly one day be assigned to Akamai or Amazon (and thus, explode in your face), then DoD addresses are the way to go.

Or is it faster to do it manually? I am subscribed to almost 120 different communities, so would save a few clicks not having to do it manually.

Hiya, what's your favourite Firefox theme? Personally looking for a new one, as I like tooting around with new themes from time to time. Thought I'd chip in here and ask what theme you have as your main, maybe add a screenshot + link, so that it's easy for folk to see it 🦊

Hiya, I'm trying to install KDE Initiary as I'll be travelling soon. Heard this was a good travel planner on the Late Night Linux Podcast, however when I try to install the app I get the message as seen in the picture. Anyone got any idea of how I could this to work?

Edit:I am on GrapheneOS, but have tried to give Fdroid all permissions, but doesn't change anything.

Thanks πŸ™Œ

Hiya!

This is probably more simple than what I'm making into, but I want to be sure, so here we go:

Currently in the market for a good HDMI cable, however, I am curious as to what I need to know (as I know nothing about these cables) before buying one. So my use case for this scenario is a 3M long HDMI cable that will connect my desktop(Nobara or Bazzite) to my TV (that has Nvidia Shield). This is for easy access to couch gaming. My desktop has a RX 6700 XT card, but unsure about the specifications of the TV other than it being a 70inch one (can try to find this if its relevant), but I am not looking to stream 4k. So let me know what kinda specs/details i need to look for in a HDMI cable for this :)))

PS. I tried setting up Sunlight + Moonlight, but honestly seemed like a bit too much configuration for my liking, but might give it a go again later on. I've also only got access to medium-speed Wifi atm, so this isn't optional.

Been keeping a keen eye on Bazzite as it seems like a good distro for people like myself who mainly use the desktop pc to play games on. But it doesn't seem like a "typical" distro for a daily driver? How does Bazzite for example differ from Nobara which is another gaming-oriented distro? I'm just curious as I keep hearing good things about Bazzite, and wondering if there would be any benefit as to someone who is using Tumbleweed, to switch to Bazzite right now.

So, if you are a Bazzite user, or have experience: let me know how it went, and if you could daily drive it!

Edit: I guess the same could be asked for ChimeraOS?

Not sure if that title is accurate, this field is not my strong point. Basically I'm about to move homes. And in my new (temporary) home I wont have access to ethernet, plus my server doesn't have a network card. I was therefore wondering if it was possible to bridge a connection between my laptop to my server with an ethernet cable. This would obviously be a short term solution, but I'm wondering if it's possible and if so, how? Or is it better to buy a cheap network card?

My laptop is running NixOS and my server Unraid, if it should be to any help.

Had never seen this game announced, but it came out yesterday it seems! Seems like a very appealing setting imo, might check it out soon.

Here's the GOG Link, https://www.gog.com/en/game/the_thaumaturge. Remember that buying from GOG means no DRM,Β can play offline and helps preserve games! πŸ’œ

Found this one online while browsing for what cats shouldn't eat. However I feel like this area is quite controversial and opinionated. Also feels like half the websites are written by AI and riddled with ads. So if anyone has a good source as to what cats should avoid then let me know.

Anyways, I found this nice illustration, but wanted to hear with you peeps whether you have any experience regarding these food items.

Also what's your take on milk/sour milk for cats? My previous cat loved it so much, and she aged until she was 17 years old, and never seemed to have a problem with it. Also asked the vet at the time and she said it was OK. However every other website I visit tell to never give milk(dairy) to cats. So which is it? Does it just depend on the cat?

Does Privacy count? I always I try to encourage people to treat themselves to better privacy, to step away from big corpo platforms and use more Foss services. Doesn't stick with a lot of em. πŸ˜”

doubt she'll get any more from stepping down... but yeah it's ridiculous how much some of these CEOs think they need. Especially in a company that is supposed to be better...

Out of curiosity, what service was this?

[-] LunchEnjoyer@lemmy.world 35 points 2 months ago

Don't forget we have to get comfortable not owning our games guys... This is Ubisoft showing us how that works..

[-] LunchEnjoyer@lemmy.world 65 points 4 months ago

Fuck this guy.

If there is one thing you shouldn't cheap out on imo it's the storage.

[-] LunchEnjoyer@lemmy.world 32 points 4 months ago

Tbf; You're paying less, for a better experience.

[-] LunchEnjoyer@lemmy.world 38 points 4 months ago

The new update is way better than the previous one.

[-] LunchEnjoyer@lemmy.world 38 points 5 months ago

Care to elaborate why exactly he's wrong? What's your opinion?

There's discussions about stopping the teaching of Unity in Universities too.
